Time for truckers to prepare for the Canadian Electronic Logging Device

     Trucker with tablet

Canadian truck companies must start making the transition to the new Canadian Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate which will roll out this month, with full implementation on June 12, 2021.  The ELD is a piece of hardware that connects to the truck’s engine control module and tracks the driver’s hours-of-service.  High fines and delays for both drivers and trucking companies are possible for non-compliance.  

The purpose of an ELD is not limited to logging hours.  Additional goals include:

  • Ensuring drivers adhere to health and safety standards
  • Developing better working conditions
  • Improving understanding of cross border relations
  • Improving understanding of regulatory requirements
  • Promoting fair competition by fleet operators
